Spitting Tiger Fined in Dubai

Tiger Woods still isn’t winning any golf tournaments.

He’s also not making any new friends in the business of golf.

Tiger has been fined by the European Tour for spitting during the final round of the Dubai Desert Classic.

The tour says tournament director Mike Stewart reviewed the incident, which took place Sunday on the 12th green, and ‘there has been a breach’ of conduct. The tour would not disclose the amount of the fine.
